They raced those early 16v engines with mechanical fuel injection but I suppose these days it's easier to get them going with carbs. When you get your hands on one, let me know how it works out for you... Lol

Interesting I saw (and posted in the Celica's in Motorsport thread) the 8v twin spark engine that was designated 125e. What I was more amazed about was the engine was running - wow!

I know that Toysport has a running 152E in a Celica but not sure if it's carby or mechanical fuel injection. It is one of my dream engines :P



The 4TGTE's were twin spark but theres also a rare twin spark 18RG. No idea where people find these awesome engines. I know you can buy 152E's from Toysport.

... and learn to tell the difference from a 151e and a 152e. the way i tell is how the cam cover bolts are laid out.

the toysport is a 152 and the other in the white is a 151

I know the difference. 151E is 2TG based and the other is 18RG. I was just curious about the mechanical injection.
The way I tell, Is the dizzy leads and dizzy location. On a 152E the dizzy is in the standard 18RC position. 151E it comes out of the head.

There are a few ex TTE mechanics that still dabble in 70/80s racing Toyota engines, etc.
If you get to know one of those guys and have the $$s ready to go, buying one wouldn't be difficult.

I think one of these 4T's went to NZ to go in a RA65 group B replica.

If I had 30K to blow on an engine I'd buy a 152E from Toysport :P

At least one of these might be a repost but fun none the less.
